How long have I lived in NC, you ask? 24 years and 5 months.
Did I pay attention in Mr. Grant’s 4th grade class when we made an edible North Carolina, you ask? I thought so, but perhaps I was too focused on the Hershey Kiss mountains to think beyond my state’s borders.
I’ve realized that my assumptions are based on experience. When I drove through Georgia to go to New Orleans, we took I-85 S through South Carolina first. When I drove through Georgia to go to Florida, we took I-95 S through South Carolina first. I have never thought about the fact that Georgia might actually touch NC in the far western corner. Sneaky Georgia.
I love surprises.
